The 2022 RI Tog Classic was a success by the ever-grateful and not exaclty soft spoken Ralph Craft. A cast of hundreds from here to Florida came to fish for our bountiful tautog fishery, which we really need to protect and then, a young angler named Rosie stoll the show. The best wrap up is right here.
When Ralph Craft throws a party, everyone has fun and some charity wins big. The 2022 RI Tog Classic is on and you need to be there because the Three Angels Fund needs you to jig deep and dig deeper. Read all the details here then head over to www.ritogclassic.com and sign up. Ralph does a lot for a lot of people without fanfare so sign up, jig deep and dig deeper.
Celebrating at URI's Mosby House, I learned the joy of being with women who choose to lead on the day our courts erased their right to choose. Some days it feels like our country is burning but some other days, we are blessed by the company of people who simply amaze us.
The RI Coastal Advocacy Coalition has delivered a letter to CRMC looking for regulatory change in the way it considers approving and siting shellfish businesses in public trust waters. With summer a wrap, Todd Treonze has been awarded the OSKAA Angler of the Year. Dennis Zambrotta has some sage advice for surfcasting Block Island and RISAA's Greg Vespe pulled a bomber bonito out of chilly November waters.
Greg Vespe, experienced fisherman, talented boat handler, patient teacher and solid human, will lead the RI Saltwater Anglers Association as its new President. His skills on the water and background participating in the fisheries management process make Mr. Vespe the perfect choice to represent some 7500 members and affiliated groups.
Clouds on the horizon and a few big ones in the mirror mean fishing can be fickle but a few aces know where they feed. Ralph Craft has a few spots open for his Tog Tourney and CRMC wants to send you some mail to keep aware of how they are, we hope, protecting our shorelines.
